Parklets come to FTL

In September 2011 we launched Fort Lauderdale’s first PARK(ing) Day event. We are so excited to see it is catching on. Both the City of Miami and Fort Lauderdale have instituted pilot programs for “Parklets” aimed at encouraging businesses to widen their sidewalk square footage for pedestrian use by utilizing (purchasing) City metered parking spots for a year.

Painted Piano Brigade

For those of you that follow us, you’ve heard a thing or two about FTL Play Your City over the past 3 months. Five donated pianos were re-purposed by local artists and demonstrated a low-cost way to instantly activate public spaces and ultimately improve the livability of the city.

Revel – Behind the Scenes

Why Revel on the Block matters to Cadence As the clock ticks down to the 2nd Revel on the Block, here’s a few fun facts to explain why this event matters to us. 1. ROTB was born from the community’s positive reaction to Better Block FTL. We listened. After the June 16th, 2012 debut of Better…


On July 27, Revelers will be treated to another fabulous art exhibit in the main exhibit space located at the center of the block. Enjoy the curated show highlighted with live musical performances throughout the day by Corey Bost, Joel DaSilva and the Midnight Howl, Richard Vergez, and Steph Taylor.

Revel on the Block Take 2

Revelers, we’re getting ready again. After a great turn out in January, Revel on the Block in Fat Village Arts District is back.

Little Garden That Could

If you follow Cadence closely you have definitely heard us mention Flagler Garden at some point. A recent hot topic featured in the Sun Sentinel, Tropic Magazine and Inside South Florida the garden has garnered support and followers eager to see the community amenity come to life.

Hi Neighbor!

The progressive online news magazine GOOD has declared April 27th Neighbor Day. Sounds good to us! We have folks ask us all the time why we do events like Revel on the Block, PARKing Day FTL and Play Your CIty FTL.

Hola Puerto Rico.

After seeing our tactical urbanism efforts with Better Block FTL and other streetscape design projects, she asked us to speak about “Streets As Places”.

FTL Play Your City

Join us for the double header launch that will create a public art and music installation for residents and visitors of Fort Lauderdale. View all five pianos, repurposed by artists, in one location before they are dispersed throughout Downtown FTL for their 3 month display.

Monthy Pop-up Gallery

When we decided to set up shop in the middle of FATVillage Art District, we knew converting our space into a temporary gallery must be a part of the plan. On October 6th we finally got our feet wet, and the Cadence Pop-up Gallery opened by launching CHAIRs.

Better Block FTL

It’s a funny thing in life when you have those rare moments where timing, talents, resources, people, and energy converge to create something that is truly amazing. We’ve all felt it before and we know to cherish and nurture it because it is special.

Keeping the Momentum

We’re coming up on 2 1/2 years in business. We’ve recently moved into a new downtown studio space that we are stoked to be in. And Better Block FTL’s awesome turnout is still resonating inside of us.
